I want to bring people some happiness and escape in this sometimes harsh world, I want them to feel another way of seeing the world
Loujah lives near the famous city of Lyon in France. She draws a lot of her inspiration from the Bohemian world. Hippie style.
How long have you been making art and what inspired you to get started?
I draw since always, already small I spent hours filling out blank sheets. I am self-taught and have always practiced drawing and music as a hobby. I started professionally drawing there two years. I wanted to share with people my world and my love for drawing.
The colours in most of your artwork are very subtle, is this style something you like to stick to when designing new pieces?
I love the black and white drawing, working with shadows. That’s why I like to bring color into my work with subtlety.
What is your favourite medium of choice and why?
I work a lot with my tablet, I sometimes sketches my ideas on paper. I still have much to learn and in the future I will love try different media, such as painting on canvas or sculpture.
Your designs are very elegant and feature lots of beautiful lines and shading. Can you tell me why you decided to use this sort of overall look?
It came to me naturally, when I take a pencil all come naturally without even thinking. I try to bring out the beauty and the sweetness of the world as I the feels.
What other artists have inspired you?
I admire many of my fellow artists such as Andrea Hrnjak , Balazs Solti , Rafapasta and many others, they do a wonderful job!
Which pieces are most dear to you, and why?
The parts that I prefer are those of the collection “Wild”. The wild animals are so beautiful, they have one of the greatest treasures in the world, freedom!
I think your art conveys a ‘calming’ feeling when looking at it. What do you want people to feel when they look at your artwork?
I want to bring people some happiness and escape in this sometimes harsh world, I want them to feel another way of seeing the world and if I just give a smile to someone that fills me.
What have you learnt whilst establishing yourself as an online artist, and further, can you offer any advice to others starting out?
I learned to push myself, I learn a little more each day, and if I had any advice it would be to believe in you all.
Where do you see yourself as an artist in the future?
I rather live from day to day, but in the future I would like to continue to live my art and do more things like sculpture, painting etc.
How do you promote your art and what part has social media played in your self-promotion?
I post regularly my work on facebook and instagram. Social media allow me to show my work around the world. It is thanks to these wholes people who support my work that my works are available!
